PROVIDING SOLUTIONS TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SINCE 1985

HydraForce is a leading provider of mobile hydraulic equipment to the construction industry, contributing greatly in the economic growth of the nation. Our products are used throughout the market in machines such as excavators, wheel loaders, backhoes, skid steer loaders and material handlers to develop infrastructure related to building, maintaining, and repairing structures that make a big impact on our health, transportation and educational sectors.

 

IOT Fleet Management for Construction

HydraForce Internet of Things (IOT) fleet management technology improves workers’ ability to schedule maintenance and helps avoid breakdowns on heavy construction equipment. It can also perform diagnostics, track usage, log location, adjust settings, and update software on the machinery. It’s a direct connection to the central or home office that helps improve asset reliability and utilization.


HydraForce understands the demands construction places on equipment. Our IOT fleet management technology helps prevent breakdowns at inopportune times, improves reliability, and even extends equipment life.


IOT Fleet Management Solutions  

  • Monitoring and logging of key operating characteristics (cycles, hours, temperatures, pressures, vibration, etc.)
  • Reporting of key performance indicators
  • Remote adjustment of on-board settings (maximum permitted speeds, loads, etc.)
  • Updating of onboard software
  • Geo-location
  • Reducing the risk of breakdown and preventing unnecessary maintenance

 

Skid Steer Control Meets HydraForce Innovation

"There's no other machine like it!" Neil Messick of Messick Equipment said as he took a test drive on a skid steer outfitted with electrohydraulic technology developed by HydraForce and Roquet. This video shows Messick demonstrating the many unique hydraulic functions of this machine, including "return to dig," bucket shake, soft ride, float, self-leveling, telematics and a beginner mode. These functions are made possible with HydraForce electroproportional cartridge valves, including the EVPR and EHPR electroproportional cartridge valves, ECU electronic controller and ERAU remote access unit for elegant and even remote control. Roquet provided the monoblock cylinder controls, which are servomechanically controlled by the HydraForce EVPR valves. The skid steer is actually a prototype Gehl R190 that has been used in testing for several years. Gehl developed the prototype electronic joystick that uses the HydraForce electronics.
